I got to build this one up for my 20th a few weeks ago. Love this build. I'm not the fastest rider but I think this bike is going to definitely going to set some new PB's.

saddle

how do you like that saddle on the track? im thinking about picking one up. do you feel that the shorter nose makes a diference for low positioning on a track rig?

Ares..

The Ares for such as small saddle is actually really comfortable. I found it easier to get a lower position. The thicker padding on the nose is nice for seated sprints as well. I felt like it didn't flex any like my fizik pave and gave a really stable platform.

Nice build!

I'm in the middle of building mine up now. Such a stiff frame. How's the Scatto for you?

Scattos

The bars are awesome. Alittle bit of an eye sore the first time I put them on the bike, but now I've gotten used to them I just see how cool they look. They're extremely stiff, I had a little bit of flex during a standing sprint but it was comparable to aluminum bars in it's stiffness. You really have to be pulling on them to make them flex. I'm using the 35's though. I've been told the 37 are better for the standing starts/sprints and are a bit stiffer.

I didn't think of that...

I was interested in the 35s for seated positioning, but I see how having a second, wider bar for standing starts makes for better leverage.

flex

you have to be joking. there is no chance you are noticing flex on these bars. also the 37's are going to be less stiff for sure. (although neither would be discernible by feel)

...

I do notice flex if I stand over the bars and purposefully try to shift them from side to side. As far as riding seated, I don't notice any flex. I prefer seated sprints so thats not really an issue for me anyways.

I'm not complaining that

I'm not complaining that their not stiff. I'm just saying that if your thinking that they're not going to flex AT ALL your going to be sadly surprised. These are by far the stiffest bars I've ever held, but they will flex inwards a bit under a lot of pressure. I'm truthfully more worried that my carbon steerer tube is going to break before the bars will.
